    The Disclaimer




    Standard disclaimer: All prices are taken from the websites of each chain, or from their printed Sunday advertisements. All prices are subject to change by each chain. Prices and inventory in-store may or may not match the website price.

    I, obviously, cannot include EVERY title released in a given week in the RoundUp
    . The titles included are those that I am interested in...as well as those which I consider will be of interest to a majority of consumers (and sometimes I’ll miss one!). I don't get paid for this, and I don't have the time to list every DVD. So, please don't complain!
    If there is a title not included in the RoundUp that you want to see, PLEASE just look it up yourself, and be nice enough to post and share the results with everyone!

    Note that I cannot include Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club prices in the RoundUp. They set prices at individual stores based on nearby competition, so there is no way I can say here what price you'll find at YOUR local Wal-Mart/Sam’s Club location. And, Circuit City is still out of business...even in Hawaii (where they NEVER guaranteed their prices anyway).






    The Specials



    --Rounduppers: I put this week's Roundup to bed a little earlier than usual this week to have it done early in anticipation of the holiday weekend. This means there is a slightly higher-chance-than-usual that amazon's prices might have been changed (as they tend to tweak prices just before release week. There's always a lot of jockeying for position in the starting gate as it were...).



    --Merry Christmas to ALL! [​IMG]



    --Best Buy has a GREAT sale this week on the recently released Blu-rays of Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Kung Fu Panda 2. Each title will be $14.99 this week.

    Merry Christmas Mike. Nothing for me & nothing in the foreseeable future now that all of the Summer blockbusters have been released. And my home theater purchases from just before BF just turned into $65 in Reward Zone certificates burning a hole in my pocket with nothing to buy.

    I'm definitely going to take advantage of the $14.99 Rise of the Planet of the Apes at BB this week...and Parenthood: S2 for $9.99 @ Target (Boy, am I glad I decided to wait on that title..currently $27.49 on amazon).

    Thanks so much Mike! Merry Christmas to all.... I highly recommend Scott Pilgrim and The Town for $9.99 at Best Buy for anyone who hasn't seen them.

    I viewed Scott Pilgrim in the movie theater, but it isn't a film made for my demographic. I'll be picking up Panda 2 though.

    Joy to the world! And Merry Christmas, Mike and all!


    As anticipated, plan to pick up Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Kung Fu Panda 2 on BD at BB this week -- too bad the $5 MFR coupon for KFP2 expires today, which is kinda weird for MFR coupon expiration date and effectively means it can't be used for this sale.


    Peace be w/ y'all...

    Merry Christmas Mike! And thank you for this week's roundup. Definitely picking up Rise of the Planet of the Apes and Kung Fu Panda 2. Probably will pick Final Destination 5 3D at the end of the week, waiting on a possible review :)

    Merry Christmas to you Mike and to everyone else as well. I'll get my son to pickup Planet of the Apes and KFP2 from Best Buy later this week. He is visiting us in Honduras right now. :), but will be going back to the States on Tuesday :(. Anyway, thanks Mike for all the hard work on the RoundUp you do, and particularly for putting in all the effort on this very special day.

    Merry Christmas one and all. (Thought it doesn't really feel like Christmas out here without any snow...but I'm not complaining!)


    Just Rise of the Planet of the Apes this week whenever I may it to a Best Buy other than the closest to me.

    Wonderful deal on Kung Fu Panda 2 at Best Buy this week. Unfortunately, it's only the 2D version that's on sale. The 3D is still exorbitantly priced (or it was when last I checked).


    Thanks for the RoundUp as always, Mike.

    It looks like Amazon matched Best Buy on Rise of the Planet of the Apes, but not KFP2. Luckily I got the latter from BB with the 2 coupons and I need to go back to the store to get a Price Correction on the former that I bought at 22.99. $8 back plus $15 in Reward Zone coupons to spend -- I may finally pick up The Pacific if I can find it in store.

    I picked up RotPotA at BB today for $14.99..and in doing so saw that the BB Exclusive of Citizen Kane (2-discer with Digibook) was on sale for $10.99! I snatched one up...even though I wasn't planning on upgrading my Citizen Kane from the DVD.

    For those with an FYE nearby, they have all their Christmas DVDs, Blu-rays and CDs for sale @ 50% off through 1-1-12.

    Scott Pilgrim is decent. But if I were 20 years younger, it would be AWESOME.

    Stopped at a local Target today to pick up Parenthood: Season 2.

    This store was a disaster. It must not have recovered from the shopping craziness...but hardly a thing was properly marked. In fact, Parenthood: S2 was marked at $39.99 instead of the $9.99. But, it rang up just fine.

    Fast Five on blu was marked down to $14.99. Almost bit.
